Guys.


Birnando (Bjørnar) and I have been talking about throwing together a Nordic meetup here in Oslo.
We have already had three or four locally, and with this one we wanted to reach a larger group.


What we had in mind for this RazorCon Oslo, was to cover subjects such as some resto-work, scale-making and fiting, Honing on various systems, stropping and whatever else you guys would like to see demonstrated or needs help with.



The location is pretty much set, and it will comfortably hold any and all that wants to attend.
We will have the place entirely to ourselves, so we can stay as long as we want, and do pretty much anything that tickles our fancy.
The price for this? Absolutely free!


We were thinking that the end of June or mid August would be possibly good dates for it.


Please chime in here in this thread or via PM to Birnando or me if you are at all interested, and what dates would be good for you.


Any and all wet-shavers are welcome, no this or that forum on this onehttp://straightrazorplace.com/images/smilies/smile.png

For those coming in to Oslo from a far, we have some plans for housing at least 8 or 10 of you (at no charge), so don't let distance stop you from attending!

What a SWEET idea!

Hopefully I can make it in August.
Only downside is that I always feel so poor when I go to Norway :biggrin:

Lol, the razor meetings we've had so far have been really fun.
The most memorable moment from the last one was when Birnando handed me a Machete, well it sure looked like one in it's sleeve, then I realized it was a Mastro Livi Snake. :smile:

That certenly was one of the highlights :)

A little teaser: A short video and a couple pics from the last meetup. Straights, stones, beer, Edit Piaf and good company, can it be any better?

Let's make the next one bigger and maybe even better!

Looks like a serious amount of fun was had. I am definitely planning on attending, but I might not be, it all depends on where I am in the world, as my wife and I are planning on travelling a bit this fall.

Great to see that this is happening! Also, Barbershop.no is by far the most interesting "shaving" shop in Scandinavia. The swedish ones are not even close..

Latest news: Another vendor have agreed to send some items for us to give away at the RazorCon, a huge thanks to Chris and shaving.ie 249751

It looks likes this is going to be quite bigger than first expected, quite a few people have signed up, both from the different forums and also some new guys who have heard about the event :001_smile

AN IMPORTANT UPDATE:


The date on this meet will be changed to the 25th of August.
Due to a very generous gift from my wife, I will be in other parts of the world at the time we had planned for.
I sincererly apologize to all possible attendees for this inconvenience, and hope that as many as possible are able to attend on the new date.


It will not be changed again!

Wow, that sounds great!

Unfortunately, I only now realized that there is a scheduling conflict on my end, and I will not be in-country for this. Very sorry about that, as I was really looking forward to meeting you guys, but that will have to be at a later point.

You make me want to move to Europe... aside from the troubles with the Euro lately.

Here's a quick vid we shot while doing some shaving and resto work.
It was shot while under the influence so it is a bit on the rough side...
Oh, the participants were not exactly sober either:)
No prep or any other modern shenanigans were used for this redneck-style video of us doing the deed:)

A huge thanks to all that participated, and specially to barbershop.no, shaving.ie and Scrupleworks who all donated some great stuff for the Con, we could not have made this such a great event without you!
